Episode 34 -The Accidental Author with Entrepreneur, Scholar Roy Huff

July 28, 2017

MMS_Roy_Huff_FB.jpgIn this episode Shakira Brown a.k.a The Small Biz Whisperer speaks with life hacker entrepreneur and accidental author Roy Huff. Roy has an inspiring story. After graduating high school a year early, he moved to Hawaii at the age of seventeen with only $100 in his pocket to start a new life to escape the cycle of poverty in his family. He has since become a very successful author and has earned five degrees in four different disciplines spanning liberal arts, history, education, and geoscience. He has worked on projects such as NASA's GOES-R Proving Ground and has co-authored peer-reviewed research, which has graced the cover of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS).

Roy is no stranger to the rewards of hardwork and knows that it is a means to an end,"A person could buy into their own hype and think that the reason they have done well up to a certain point is because they are intelligent, have good genes or whatever. But the simple truth is it comes down to deliberate practice and the amount of effort they can put in to doing something."

Today, Roy is committed to promoting education, applied science, individuality, creativity, and above all, hope. He grew up on the East Coast, but has lived in Hawaii for more than half his life where he currently resides and creates new worlds with the stroke of his pen.

Listen to this episode to learn a bit about his journey and also hear about what’s in his self-help book, Think Smart, Not Hard, which shares some of the strategies he has learned to achieve success and happiness. Be inspired by Roy's story of perseverance and ingenuity to break free of any personal roadblocks you may be facing.
